Can I enable Cool and Quiet after my overclock is stable?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My Phenom II is stable at an overclock I'm happy at, can I enable Cool and Quiet now that it is stable? I have it enabled right now and it seems to work however it jumps around occasionally. For example normal Cool and Quiet is 800 Mhz with 1.100 volts, mine is idle at that the majority of the time. However occasionally it goes to 2214 Mhz with 1.268 volts. Does anyone know if it is still working properly? Under full load it goes up to 1.472 volts and 3800 Mhz which is what I have it set to. So should I turn it back off or leave it on?

I always run C&Q. Even on my 1090T @4233MHz with a 3211MHz NB Freq thumb.gif Same with sig rig too!

The occasional jumps you see are normal, no need to worry. I'd enjoy the lower temps and less full time stress on the system.

Thats good to know. Ive been wondering the same too. On startup my temps are low, but once the load is applied the temps stay much higher at idle. Wasnt the case with default settings with CnQ.

Thank you, I was just making sure it wasn't anything to worry about. Because everyone always says to disable CnQ for overclock. So I guess it's actually a good idea to turn it on after you get the overclock stable? I just like the idea of my chip living a long life lol, and I actually care about my electricity bill. Running 123.9 watts continuous kind of hurts biggrin.gif

I have it enabled and it causes no problems.
